For those who actually read reviews and not just the rating: I've been trying to figure out what to write about this hotel. I am a 32 yr old female who has backpacked 30 or so countries and trip advisor has never steered me wrong. We booked this hotel because it was near "bike the coast" which was the reason...

The staff was very helpful and friendly. Wonderful room and beach, pool and of course the breakfast was splendid. The food was looking great though a bit average taste. However, overall everything about the place is very good!

When I tried to enter the room of my friend I was challenged and told the room was strictly for her use. It wasn't as though I was intending...

My wife and I visited this hotel - travelling from Nairobi - in September 2016 - for a honeymoon break. Ok let's start with some positive elements of our seven night stay. The location is fabulous - you are literally seconds from Bamburi beach - which is a breath-takingly beautiful beach - despite being reported "dirty". Upon arrival we found...

I stayed at Kenya Bay Hotel from 29th December to 3rd January. I went there with my husband and 3 teenage children. I was not very impressed with the reception area...the management had not made much effort to spruce up/decorate the hotel...it was the festive season for heaven's sake! The receptionist was however very friendly and we were shown to...
